New Paint That Has just Started Peeling – Written February 2008 (Aged 32)

New Paint That Has Just Started Peeling

how come –
you never actually say –
you love him
where is your heartfelt feelings
it is like –
new paint that has just started peeling

no passionate ode
no personal feeling
no heartfelt cry of joy
it is like –
new paint that has just started peeling

never saying –
i love you
with a scream and a shout
it is written down
but it never feels meant
no, lazy dreaming or manic screaming
it is like –
new paint that has just started peeling




James Garratt – February 2008
